Thanks for the quick reply!

We're using an M Audio Delta 1010 which has eight analogue 
simultaneous inputs and outputs. We're trying to record a four piece 
band live, so that each player has an independent stereo track. After 
that, we can overdub with more takes to give us 16 tracks and more.

We are using ALSA 0.92 and the envy24control mixer/router, and it's 
working really well with Audacity with up to four input channels. The 
multichannel support in Audacity is experimental, and so far it isn't 
scaling well (on our system) to eight inputs. 

We wanted to try another multitracker for Linux to find out where the 
problem lies - so we thought of the venerable ecasound. tkeca looked 
like it could be a great front-end for this job, because it looks to 
be very light on resources.
